Subject: Billy Collins - Animated Poetry
This is one of two animated poems by American poet Billy Collins available in the Animation Shorts section. I've seen music videos and videos where text and/or the voice of a narrator is combined with animation. Here you hear the author read his own text in a musical bass voice. Subtle poetry is visualized or interpreted with subtle visual means. This piece was created by Julian Grey of Headgear, "The Dead" by Juan Delcan of Spontaneous.
